Secret Festival #1
SIFF's capsule summary (from last year, because they don't have one for this year): "The Secret Festival is exactly what it says-all screenings are secret. What we can tell you is that you need to purchase a special Secret Festival pass to attend the screenings that occur on the four Sundays of the festival at 11 a.m. sharp."
SIFF link (also last year's): Secret Festival

Because of the rules of the Secret Festival, I can't tell what we saw. 7 Good

I was really excited about this film, because it's the first Secret Festival film under the curation of SIFF's (acting) Artistic Director Beth Barrett.

Review: Based on Beth's introduction, I didn't quite expect to like the film, but it sucked me in. It was good. However, because of the rules of the Secret Festival, I can't say what it was. Yes, I know it's a wicked taunt to tell about it with no details other than saying I was there and can't discuss it. But that's how it works.

Language: I'm not telling.

Rating: I'm not telling.

Screening: Sunday 11 am, SIFF Cinema Egyptian.
Audience: 95% full, somewhere between 476 and 590 seats, depending on what sources I check.

Goodies: a really slow Thai restaurant after the film.

Ads: I don't know; due to heavy traffic and the need to park, I didn't get into the theater until after Beth's introduction was already in progress, so I didn't even know the title of the film until after I did a little research tonight.

Notes to myself:

SIFF statistics: 29 films (all features), 29 time slots, three parties. ("J": 18 films, two parties.)
